Grid Forming Inverter Models

Created: February 8, 2023

These EMT Models of PV Inverter Based Resource in Grid Following and Grid Forming Mode have been shared by Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) . These models were developed by EPRI in collaboration with University of Illinois Urbana Champaign (UIUC), University of Washington (UW), and University of Minnesota (UM). 

The model has two 100 MVA PV Models, which can be grid following or grid forming, and a very simple power system between them, to which faults can be applied. The documentation contains more details on how to set the model to grid following and grid forming modes as well as contact information for the EPRI model developer. This model is in PSCAD V5.
